The starter in your Acura goes by many names. The factory might call it a starter motor or cranking motor. A service tech might call it a self-starter. Either way, what starters do is the same, whether they're remanufactured or new. Put simply, they transfer the power your engine needs to start.
They do it using a small, car battery-powered motor and a starter relay. A remote starter accomplishes this with the press of a button on a smart key fob. When a starter won't crank to turn your engine, though – or won't do it consistently, at least – it's usually because it's going out or gone bad. The usual causes are dirty or loose wires, rusted battery terminals, or simply damaged or broken-down starter parts.
Luckily, signs of starter failure are easy to identify. For one, your dashboard might light up though your engine may not start at all. Jump-starting it may not work, either. The starter may even start to smoke. You might inspect it and find it covered in oil. You may be able to get it to turn, but only in some drive modes or gears.
